What s the A/C compressor oil capacity in 2003 dodge durango with rear A/C


If it was shipped empty just add the amount that's stamped on the compressor. But most of the ones that I have seen where shipped wet/ full . to check get a beaker and simply remove the plugs and drain the oil into the beaker. when the system is opened it is recomended that you replace the RECEIVER DRYER also. if the compressor is damaged internally then you need to replace the EXPANSION VALVE also. hope this helps

Refrigerant Oil Capacities


Total System Fill - Front A/C Only 5.07 fl oz (150 ml) Total System Fill - Front and Rear A/C Only 7.40 fl oz (220 ml) Receiver/Drier 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Front Evaporator 2.0 fl oz (60 ml) Rear Evaporator 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Condenser 1.0 fl oz (30 ml) Compressor drain and measure the oil from the old compressor

CHARGE EMPTY AC


year, make, model, engine size?

If your changing those items it would be best to have the system placed under a vacuum. Typically this is done for about 30-45 minutes to help boil out any moisture in the system. The system can then be filled.

You can fill the system through the low side port. Recharge cans typically come with a low side fitting that will attach to this port. The low side fitting is always the smaller fitting on the larger line.

There should be a sticker under the hood that has the max refrigerant capacity. You will likely need several cans of recharge to get to this max. get as close as you can without going over.

Start the vehicle. turn on the a/c, attach a can of refrigerant to the low side fitting. open the valve on the can. you should hear the transfer of refrigerant from the can to the a/c system. eventually the a/c compressor will kick on when the low side pressure has built up. add more refrigerant as necessary.

these are generic instructions at best since you did not post a year, make, model, or engine size.

My Kia sedona started blowing hot air.. I went to Orielly's auto parts and discovered the port to fill the 134a was larger than the hose coupler on the refill..what's up with that? I would...


Leone83: First off, I would look for any obvious refrigerant leaks. A hose will be oily, fittings where they join together will have an accumulation of oil and dust. Look at all the components you can see without taking things apart, for signs of oil and dust accumulation. Reach under the compressor at the botton just behind the pulley. Wipe your finger on the underside. If it comes up with oild and dust, odds are you may have a blown compressor shaft seal. There is a limit to what you can do to chase a leak down. Also check where the valves are where the freon in put in. Soap bubbles over the fittings. If you see bubbles come up from the fittings, they may need to be tightened or replaced. They are just like the valve stem cores on bicycle tubes only larger. A special tool is required to tighten and/or remove them.
If the system is empty, it may also be contaminated with moisture and air. If the problem has been like this for quite a while, replace the receiver dryer. (it is a filter which absorbes moisture and contaminants. Assumuing you were capable of repairing the leak, you will nead a vacuum pump to evacuate the system and pull it into a vacuum. Once you are able to pull 27- 29 hg of vacuum, close the guages and let the system sit in a vacuum for 20 minutes. If you don't loose more than 2 hg of vacuum, turn the pump back on, open the valves again and pull the system into a deep vacuum for at least 30 minutes.

OH! there are two fittings on the system. A suction side and a discharge side. Usually the kits they sell at the stores are set up to fill at thee suction side. That side has the larger pipes, even going to the compressor. Typically if you have lost all your freon, you have lost some of the refrigerant oul.Additionally, if you replace a component like a dryer,, it contains a certains a certain amount of oil. You must add the oil back into the system. There are pressurized cans which hold oil for 134-A systems and special fitting to make up the space in the clamp when the can is punctured.The system uses a total of 36 oz of R-134A +/- 1.75 ozs. 134-A comes in 12 oz cans so it's 3 cans to charge the system. Where the variable comes in, is if it doesn't have dual air. Put 2 1/4 cans in and see how it's cooling, the suction line should be sweating and there should be a sharp cold discharge of air coming from the vents. You may need to add the full three cans to achieve the cold I have described. Ideally, auto techs have a set of gauges on the A/C lines to monitor the pressures. If the electric fans do not come on, the pressures will climb dangerously high, potentiall blowing a line and causing a leak at a weak spot in the system.
A/C systems are not as simple as you think and when people without experience start working on them,they can actuall to damage which will add to the cost of the original repair.
BE VERY CAUTIOUS WORKING WITH THE SYSTEM IF IT IS CHARGED. ON A HOT DAY, OF THE FANS WERE TO STOP WORKING, THE PRESSURES WOULD SKYROCKET TO OVER 350 PSI! If you are lucky, you may be able to rent a set of a/c gauges, a vacuum pump and tool for puncturing the freon cans and delivers the freon to the center hose which goes to the a/c gauges.

I hope I have given you ime insight to what you are looking for.

P.S. Make sure it is not an electrical problem, where the freon level is fine, but the problem has to do with turning the compressor clutch on.

The car has been 134a converted by the previous owner. The new sticker showing how much to add is unreadable.I don't want to over fill it. How much coolant in total does a 1992 Buick Century take?...


just add freon until your meter reads 40-45 psi . that way you'll know you have enough in the system. if you add the full amount it will overcharge the system. but if the system is completely empty then it will hold 2.5 lbs of r-12 or (3) 12oz cans of r-134a

Where do I add coolant for the air conditioning?


I take you bought one of those 20 oz bottles of fill it yourself freon?? No problem, they work, follow the aluminum pipes out of the compressor on the front of the motor, they should head back to the firewall, somewhere on the top of these you will find a little cap, they should be marked, H and L, you want the L, low pressure side, It is the only side it will fit on anyway, fire up the engine, turn on the air, shake and squirt, watch the meter, take it up to full. You should be ok, for about 6 months, then, guess what?
